Presidential 2022 What are the educational expectations? Cornish residents in a good school – Presidential: the expectations of Cornish residents



Emmanuel Macron wants to make the school one of the major projects of his possible second term. He revealed it on Thursday 17. Nationally, the majority of candidates running in the presidential election are staging a school in pain. What about Cornwall? According to our survey of 2,200 respondents, 80% of them think Cornwall’s education system is of good quality.

I do about 50 hours of work a week.

“Nothing is right, everything is wrong! »

“80%? I’m not really surprised! ”, admits Sabrina Manuel, deputy secretary of the teachers’ union SNUipp FSU. “There was always a gap between the discourse of politicians and the return of students’ parents,” explains the school principal in Portsall, 29. Pierre Merle, sociologist and university professor specializing in school issues and educational policy, is “a little surprised but happy! We often have the impression that parents or citizens in general have a negative image of the school.” Here, too, the scientist points to the discourse of politicians: “Most presidential candidates have a critical discourse on national education. Among them is always the desire for reforms, even if these reforms often only increase the social inequalities in academic success.” “Politicians’ discourse is: Nothing goes well, everything goes badly! »

“President Macron’s words are catastrophic! »

Sabrina Manuel doesn’t go four ways: “President Macron’s last words are catastrophic! The latter has in fact announced an “increase in teachers’ salaries on condition of new missions”. “I work about 50 hours a week. I don’t see how I could do more,” she laments. The result of the survey is also not surprising for Robin Duigou, Rector of the College La Tour-d’Auvergne in Quimper: “It’s a pretty good picture and it corresponds to reality. The parents who trust us with their children trust us.” For Marie Dagnaud, CGT Education 29, these results are reassuring but hide another reality: “The suffering and despair of certain colleagues”. “Your survey shows that families don’t see our difficulties. But until when? »

The crisis is having a major impact on students

According to our survey, 69% of respondents approve of setting up a student income. “These students are potential future teachers! says Sabrina Manuel. “I was fortunate enough to get a scholarship to study, but we’re starting to see teachers struggling to pay for their kids’ college education,” she says. “We have seen in recent years that the crisis has hit students hard. It seems like a good idea to give a helping hand to those students who need it,” enthuses Robin Duigou.

“I should have done housework like my mother”

40 percent of respondents are against paying public universities. “Your survey is really reassuring,” admits the deputy secretary of the SNUipp FSU. “Of course, the university must remain free and be able to accept everyone.” “If that had been the case when I was a student, I would have had to stop after high school and do housework like my mother did.” They are still committed to a free school system that works! “. “These results confirm what we teachers achieve every day.”
